 The January Calgary Slam Poetry event already been and gone but it's still recorded here. You hear

words off the paper it's spoken word carried far and near. The Calgary Poetry Slam is presented at the Auburn Saloon the last Thursday of the month. Thanks to Sheri-D Wilson and Calgary International Spoken Word Festival who are generously supported by the Canada Counsel for the Arts .

 

 

The Slam celebrates the spoken words of poetry, prose and performance.

 

It's all so very simple.

 

One poet, One poem, No props.

 

One time keeper , One score keeper

 

Three minuets for the poet to deliver their spark.

 

Three Judges picked at random each scoring

 

on a sliding scale from 1 to 10 based on

 

the poem, the poet and the audience response.

 

 

Note* there are ten seconds of grace that the audience can abide,

 

but if the poet goes past that limit, they must be reminded of what may be

 

considered by some a waste of the other poets times.

 

Thus spoke this is what the participatory audience doth say.

 

“You rat bastard bitch! You're ruining everything for everyone”

 

a joined to this phrase, some audience members may also exclaim

 

“... But it was well worth it!”

 

 

I say this then thank god for the Slam... it puts out a little of everything, and lets

poets have a place to stand, a say to have and performance, perchance to lend their

words a hand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next Calgary Slam will be held February 26 , at the Auburn Saloon 163- 115 9th Ave SE

 

Open Mike and Slam, sign in starts at 7:30 pm usually there are five spaces for Open Mike

 

and ten spaces for Slammers.

 

Poetry starts at *8:00 pm.

Remember the passion of words creates the way of knowledge, or is it the passion of knowledge creates the way of words? No.  Maybe it is the way of words creates Passion, ah well no matter.

 the reality is that some of the most passionate of poets will be reading at Weeds Cafe every third wednesday of  a given month the open mike starts at 8 PM and the featured reader blends in at the end.    Weeds Cappuccino Bar  -  1903 20 ave NW  Calgary
